Benfica striker Oscar Cardozo has issued a ‘come and get me’ plea to Premier League clubs after admitting he is desperate to play in England.

The Paraguayan’s agent Pedro Aldave says Cardozo wants to move to the Premier League and Manchester City are reportedly keen to replace Roque Santa Cruz with his international strike partner.

Aldave said: “I think Benfica may sell this summer after the World Cup and a possible destination is England.

“There are offers from England, Spain, Italy, Turkey and Russia but the deal will depend on money.

“Oscar will have to make a decision but the Premier League is a very attractive option,” he added.

City are want to bolster their striking options with question marks over the future of Santa Cruz, Emmanuel Adebayor, Robinho and even Carlos Tevez.

Representatives from the Eastlands club have already opened talks to sign Wolfsburg’s Edin Dzeko but time is running out if they are to get the Bosnian on the cheap.
